[Gluster-users] rsync and glusterfs

I'm using 2.0.0rc8 on openSuse.  I have a system of four servers combined
via distribute (I can send volfiles if anyone wants to see).  I have been
using rsync to transfer some files over to a glusterfs volume from an nfs
server.  I use a command like:

rsync -av dir host1:/mnt/glusterfs/

This is working fine.  However, when I stopped the process and then
restarted the rsync process using:

rsync -av dir host2:/mnt/glusterfs/

the files are rewritten for some reason.  If I then stop the process and go
back to host1, the already-copied files are appropriately skipped.  In other
words, rsync treats the files differently based on what client did the
original writing.  Any suggestions as to what is going on?
